Occupy Phoenix | We Are The 99%
We are focused on creating a peaceful dialogue and working towards strengthening our community. We do not condone or encourage violence of any kind!
Occupy Wall Street is a people-powered movement that began on September 17, 2011 in Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District, and has spread to over 100 cities in the United States and actions in over 1,500 cities globally. Occupy Phoenix began in Cesar Chavez Plaza on October 15, 2011 – what we now call the Global Day of Change. #OccupyPhoenix stands in solidarity with #OWS. We are pushing back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process, and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that has caused the greatest recession in generations. Simply put, Wall Street is holding the United States Government hostage and we would like to set them free so that WE, the 99%, can have a voice in our own country. The movement is inspired by popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, and aims to expose how the richest 1% of people are writing the rules of an unfair global economy that is foreclosing on our future.
The Occupy Movement is a horizontally organized resistance movement employing the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic to restore democracy in America. We are focused on creating a peaceful dialogue and working towards strengthening our community. We do not condone or encourage violence of any kind! We use a tool known as a “people’s assembly” to facilitate collective decision making in an open, participatory and non-binding manner. We welcome people from all colors, genders and beliefs to attend our General Assemblies. Please check the Calendar to view our upcoming events.
